wanting things lyrics – dionne warwick

wanting things
(originally by connie francis)

tell me how long must i keep
wanting things
needing things
when i have so much?

there are many men who have much less than me
day by day
they walk their way
and they find more in life than i can see

tell me, when will i learn to resist
wanting things
touching things
that say: do, do not touch?

people that i meet seem to think i am strong
they don’t see
inside of me
so they don’t know i’m weak and often wrong

tell me, why must i keep
wanting things
needing things
that just can’t be mine?
oh, wanting things
that just can’t be mine?
